Quantitative Social Science: An Introduction in Stata
Foyalty 222

Quantitative Social Science: An Introduction in Stata (Hardback)

£74.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

The Stata edition of Imai's groundbreaking textbook on data analysis and statistics for the social sciences and allied fields



Quantitative analysis is an increasingly essential skill for social science research, yet students in the social sciences and related areas typically receive little training in it-or if they do, they usually end up in statistics classes that offer few insights into their field. This textbook is a practical introduction to data analysis and statistics written especially for undergraduates and beginning graduate students in the social sciences and allied fields, such as business, economics, education, political science, psychology, sociology, public policy, and data science.



Quantitative Social Science engages directly with empirical analysis, showing students how to analyze data using the Stata statistical software and interpret the results-it emphasizes hands-on learning, not paper-and-pencil statistics. More than fifty data sets taken directly from leading quantitative social science research illustrate how data analysis can be used to answer important questions about society and human behavior.



Proven in classrooms around the world, this one-of-a-kind textbook features numerous additional data analysis exercises, and also comes with supplementary teaching materials for instructors.
